A link has been found between your hormones and over-eating

They're basically to blame for everything, really.

Whether it's mood swings, nasty spots, a few extra pounds, or whatever else happens, we always make the point to blame our hormones.

It's not an excuse - they really are the cause of all those annoying things we just mentioned. However, now you can add another onto the list - your hunger.

Sometimes, whether it's your time of the month or not, you just feel constantly hungry - and we get it. We only finish our lunch and look for something to snack on in the office.

We often found that when we were constantly hungry, we had absolutely no explanation for it - but now we do.

A report published in the International Journal of Obesity looked at the link between late night eating and hormonal spikes.

Susan Carnell, Ph.D, who conducted the study, said: "Our findings suggest that evening is a high-risk time for overeating, especially if you're stressed and already prone to binge eating.

"The good news is that having this knowledge, people could take steps to reduce their risk of overeating by eating earlier in the day, or finding alternative ways to deal with stress."

Hormones can act up at the craziest of times, so next time you have a stressful day, try do some meditation or yoga to help get you by.
